The once-through perfused (18 ml/min) rat liver preparations from vehicle-, phenobarbital (PB)-, and 3-methylcholanthrene (3-MC)-treated rats were used for the study of 14C-ethimizol [4,5-di(methylcarbamoyl)-1-ethyl-imidazole] elimination after input concentrations of 5, 25, 50, and 100 microM. The steady state hepatic extraction ratios decreased with(More)
Ethimizol, 4,5-di(methylcarbamoyl)-1-ethyl-imidazole, was metabolized into at least six metabolites in an isolated perfused rat liver preparation. Based on TLC and mass spectrometry, 4-carbamoyl-5-methylcarbamoyl-1-ethyl-imidazole and 4,5-di(methylcarbamoyl)-imidazole were identified as the primary metabolites of ethimizol. These undergo further(More)
The present report describes development of hexamethonium complexes based on fullerene C60. Hexamethonium has a limited penetration into CNS and therefore can antagonize central effects of nicotine only when given at high doses. In the present studies conducted in laboratory rodents, intraperitoneal administration of hexamethonium-fullerene complexes(More)
It is shown for the first time that the mammalian enzymes can cause the degradation of the C60 fullerene molecules. This biodegradation is caused by the action of а hypochlorite generated neutrophil enzyme myeloperoxidase of fullerene molecule and leads to the loss of the topology of the fullerene core.
